To start with, check the tension on the power steering belt. Is there any noise associated with the non-working power steering? When it is not working, can you see the fluid in the reservoir flowing?

Is a bit vague. Obviously the P/S works until the engine is turn off. Please give us a little bit more info to help you.

Sometimes when I start the car the electric power steering does not work. Other times it does work. I can turn the car off and back on and might work. There times when you turn it on a it works for a few seconds.

Replace the fuse with a known good fuse. If the problem continues, the problem may lie within the Electronic power Steering module. Located at the steering column. Unfortunately, diagnostic for the system is not available.
